Fresh fish

Thank you all for the wonderful tags, I have 4 thank you;
Valerie being-red
Oleander sooo-this-is-life
Hula hulassecrets

So I decided I will combine and give 10 random facts about moi, and give a random photo that I have never posted from Bambola's tag, girl with the big brown eyes with the story behind it.

1. When I was in 4th grade, I had Mononucleosis (the kissing disease) ...Why is it they call it that anyway?? But every time I am extremely exhausted I start to wonder If I have that again, (even though I am running off of 4 hours of sleep).

2. I could beat myself up and win, I am so hard on myself to get things done sometimes as far as work and daily chores I rarely let myself relax, and if I do I sure will make myself feel guilty for it. :) But I have a passion for putting things in its place. I love organizing, I love to clean my surroundings and make it all pretty, it relaxes me.
Note to self: Get out more..

3. I have never ever had a speeding ticket or any sort of traffic violation (knock on wood). I have been pulled over plenty but have had a nice streak of luck. (it better not break now that I am talking about it) also a bit superstitious.
But the best thing I got off of was when I was 16 and I was pulled over for running a red light, having a light out in the back and front, not wearing my glasses ( I had a restriction at the time), having to many passengers in my vehicle (7 of us in a little Honda civic) I was past curfew, and speeding on top of that.
He was not a happy cop, he actually made me go sit in his car and as he was checking out my license, he asked me how long I have had my nose pierced for?? " Its a mole sir". He was embarrassed and let me go with a warning.

4. I want to move to Europe.. Period!

5. Every month I tell my body to just keep those boobs that come right before your monthly hell, those are the ones that make me happy..

6. I am obsessed with information. I want to know more, more and more, and when you quiz me on what I have learned, I will get nervous and loose it until you walk away. Must come from being an extremely shy child.

7. I am more open with strangers than I am with the ones I care about, I have a great wall that surrounds me, I am not even sure of how to break it down. which takes me to #8.

8. I would love therapy!! Talking about myself with no guilt, or fear of judgement, telling all of my secrets. Sign me up.

9. This song has always given me chills since I was little.

10. I become addicted to certain meals, which I will eat over and over again until I hate it for awhile. Example, 5 times this week I have eaten the same salad, (cucumbers, mushrooms, yellow tomato, glazed walnuts and vinaigrette)  and I want another one :p

Here I was messing around after a photoshoot where we were using fish necklaces ( they were real and dead) with a model. I decided last minute to pop the fish in my mouth. I look retarded and cannot believe how still I was as the fish's tail was way down my throat.

lol ...I thought it was real at first. ....I'm not sure why it surprises me but this could be my list ...well, except for 1 and 3 :)

Unknown said...

OMG it was REAL?!?!?!?!?

{also, there's definitely a "deep throat" joke in there somewhere} please don't change it though. ;)

Unknown said...

I love that I am laughing instead of sleeping as I should be :)) I totally thought of that as I was typing as well. ..LOL..

Lilly said...

Loved the photo - as long as I dont think about it being a real fish - I love sardines so whats the difference really.

Well I am like you on a fair few of those facts. I want to live in Italy for a couple of years. I do the same with food. Its all or nothing. No 2 same, No 3, same, even down to lying to policemen, No 7 the same, No 8 done it and its interesting to get a better undertanding of self BUT sometimes creative types are like this, dont fret and that salad sounds delicious. Peter Gabrielle - a classic. Great post.

Great picture.

I lived in Europe when I was a kid and I miss it sometimes... I miss the culture...

Same here, never had a ticket, always got away with a warning :-) (knock on wood)

good luck on #4 I hope you make it.

Lo said...

That's a funny great picture! Can I please have your work ethic?

Baybay Mama said...

Thanks for sharing. I would love therapy too! Hahahah kidding but not. I think everyone could use some sort of therapy. That is amazing that you have never had a speeding ticket or traffic accident. I am super impressed. I don't even drive in NYC and still I sometimes manage to F#@$ up when I get behind the wheel.

drollgirl said...

i love this post! you are fab. this made me smile.

p.s. i could not imagine going to a therapist EVER as i would feel too vulnerable and exposed (and possibly their most boring patient EVER). you must be stronger than me!

Char said...

whoa - that shot is something else. you are a better woman than me! :)

great sharing - thank you.

Feisty Crone said...

I hope you make it to Europe!

TMFA said...

Seeker said...

Excellent fact - I love learning about people and your little "tagged" factoids were great. I tagged you, too, by the way, just a little while ago. I've just posted mine on my blog.

Can I also tell you that your work is extraordinary..

Great post! And the pre-hell boobies are the bestest!

Liv Bambola said...

Yay! What a fantastic photo! Thanks for posting it!

LOVE the ten points too...esp #10. So honest =)

Some days I'd love to be able to get inside my head... others I'm not sure I'd like what I'd see =P

=) Bambola x

I want to move to another country too! But sometimes I think I will be so scared:/

Great photo (even though it makes me go "brrrr!").

Weird to say "me too!" after so many of your facts, though I had mono at 21. NO FUN. I highly recommend #9 to anyone (though ironically, I think the people who need therapy most are usually the people who'd never be open to it!) — it can be life-changing.

Thanks for sharing!

Catherine said...

sweet lord. you keep getting cooler.

Valerie Rojas Braverman said...

Christina Entcheva said...
